LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Monday, provided an update on Mohammad Hasnain’s rehabilitation, stating that the right-arm pacer was “showing signs of improvement”.
Mohammad Hasnain sustained an ankle injury during the Lanka Premier League (LPL) in August and has been out of action since then.
He then travelled to England from Sri Lanka and had an MRI. The scans revealed the fast bowler requires rehabilitation for his ankle, which has been under process since 13 September in England.
Meanwhile, the PCB shared the latest development regarding Mohammad Hasnain on X, formerly Twitter, asserting that he is expected to recover in two weeks.
“Mohammad Hasnain is expected to recover in two weeks’ time after showing signs of improvement in his ongoing rehabilitation for his ankle injury,” PCB Media wrote.
“The 23-year-old fast bowler sustained the injury while playing in the Sri Lanka Premier League in August,” the statement added.

For the unversed, Mohammad Hasnain is one of the three injured Pakistan pacers, alongside Naseem Shah and Ihsanullah, who are also recovering from their respective injuries.
Last week, the PCB also provided an update on Naseem and Ihsanullah’s injury status.
Ihsanullah, who has featured for Pakistan in one ODI and four T20Is, suffered an elbow injury. The 20-year-old has been ruled out from international cricket since playing for Pakistan in the ODI series against New Zealand at home this year in April.
PCB shared that the lanky pacer underwent surgery here in the first week of September and was placed in an elbow brace for four weeks.
“Ihsanullah had to undergo surgery in a private hospital in Lahore. A doctor was flown in from England to operate Ihsanullah in the first week of September,” PCB stated.
“After the operation, the fast bowler was placed in an elbow brace for four weeks, with a doctor and physio attending him on a daily basis.
“His condition is satisfactory and the brace will be removed at the end of fifth week. Afterwards, he will proceed with rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore.”
Pakistan’s first-choice pacer Naseem Shah was ruled out of the ICC World Cup 2023 in India due to a shoulder injury, which he sustained during the ACC Men’s Asia Cup 2023.
He was then replaced by experienced pacer Hasan Ali in Pakistan’s squad for the World Cup.
“20-year-old Naseem got injured during Asia Cup, ruling him out of the ICC World Cup 2023,” PCB stated.
“Following the injury, the fast bowler underwent shoulder surgery earlier last week. During the operation, he remained absolutely stable and was discharged from the hospital the next day.
“He will be attended by two physiotherapists for his rehabilitation initially at the hospital and also later at the training ground and gym.
“During this entire period, he will be continuously monitored and the doctor who operated on him will see him again in the third week of October.”
